Product Description

D-Link DHP-308AV Powerline AV 500 Mini Adapter

The DHP-308AV The Powerline AV 500 Mini Adapter uses your home’s existing electrical wiring to extend your Internet connection. It turns every power outlet into a high speed network connection. Compliant with the HomePlug AV standard, it provides network access to your computers, game consoles, televisions, and any other Internet-enabled devices throughout your home. Compact design allows the Mini Adapters to fit discretely into your power outlet without blocking adjacent power sockets.

Ideal for bandwidth intensive applications

This DHP-308AV The Powerline AV 500 Mini Adapter is compliant with the HomePlug AV standard and capable of delivering data transfer rates at speeds of up to 500 Mbps, faster than regular Powerline AV products. This rapid transmission speed makes it ideal for bandwidth-intensive applications, guaranteeing smooth HD video streaming, VoIP phone calls, and lag-free online gaming experiences. This device provides ample network bandwidth, enabling you to tap into existing electrical wiring for high-quality multimedia streaming. Additional Quality of Service (QoS) support prioritises multimedia traffic over other types of traffic on your network connection, ensuring faster transmission.

Convenient setup and secure operation

Plugs directly into a power outlet, and does not require any additional cables. Extend your home network by connecting multiple devices in the farthest corners of your home, or attach a switch or wireless access point to the adapter to connect even more devices. The adapter implements 128-bit AES data encryption at the push of a button to protect your network from any intruders. With hassle-free plug and play installation, it’s an ideal solution to create a wall-to-wall home network.

Power-saving

During periods of inactivity, the Mini Adapters will go into sleep mode to save power, reducing power usage by more than 70%, allowing you to save energy automatically without sacrificing on performance.

Followed the quick setup guide but it will not work because entering an alphabetic URL as shown in the instructions results in a DNS lookup that is bound to fail on many computers. It does not tell you that the numeric address is 193.168.0.50 unless you go to the full manual.
Its not obvious what the hybrid connection really is, how it works, or what kind of devices are "hybrid routers" that it can connect to. It appears not to work with older (200MBPS) D-Link HomePlug devices unless you use the quick connect button and then the default appears to be to create a private network name which I believe means that it will then fail to talk to other devices that were in a powerline network using the default which was the public name.
The device appears to be quite unreliable (failing to connect with other powerline devices (all D-Link 200MBPS) for very long). In my case the power cabling has been used successfully for powerline networking for years. I'm beginning to get the impression that these devices cannot cope with more than two devices without compromising reliability. When the powerline connection fails, it seems not to recover unless the units are power cycled and sometimes they still fail. Removing some devices appears to improve the reliability of the remaining network. The wireless side seems to be OK but its no use without the powerline network. Having said that, the wireless connection from an iPad failed numerous times before I was able to get the device admin page up.
I called D-Link for support and was told I needed to sync all the devices within 2 minutes. So I got 5 devices in close proximity and kicked off the setup on the DHP W310AV admin page. It failed to see ANY devices time and time again.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Before I get on to the review of this, D-Link's W310AV PowerLine WiFi Extender, bear in mind that it's not a standalone product and it needs one other HomePlug-compatible adaptor to work. The product blurb that came with it mentions D-Link's DHP-308AV HomePlug adaptor, but I got this at the same time as a pair of Netgear HomePlug adaptors, and the two sets have so far worked together without any problems. This is good, because if they hadn't the D-Link would be nothing more than a chunky plastic box taking up a power socket.

Shamelessly plagiarising from my review of the Netgear devices, HomePlug is an agreed standard (of sorts) for passing network traffic through the electrical wiring in your home, effectively using your home's power wiring as integrated network cabling in order to connect networked devices. Getting HomePlug devices to work together usually comprises nothing more than plugging one of the adaptors into a home power socket next to your router and then connecting it to your router using an Ethernet cable, then plugging the second adaptor into a power socket next to your PC or other networked device and connecting said device to that adaptor with another Ethernet cable. Being a lone item, the D-Link comes with only one, 1-metre Cat5E Ethernet cable.

I already had the Netgear HomePlug network up and running so I simply plugged the D-Link into another power socket, pressed the 'quick connect' button on it and the 'security' button on the Netgear adaptor next to my router, then waited around 15 seconds for all the lights on the front of the D-Link to illuminate.

I already have a D-Link power line set which worked well.I bought the extender to facilitate handheld tablets. After 6 weeks the device is still not set up and the support from D-Link is non existent. They do not reply to emails and the telephone line is a 10p per minute job. I have been waiting on the telephone for more than an hour, twice! The support on the web site is all about FAQs from long since passed products. I find it impossible to access the setup utility; it jams my browser and says the page cannot be displayed. After an hour or more trying to make the access I become very despondent. Looking at the forums many customers have experienced the same problem. The final sting in the tail was that I have had to reconfigure my original set up as trying to configure this device stopped it from working. This device does not do what it says on the tin.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First, its important to note that this is a powerline device rather than a repeater, so you do need an existing poweline network for it to work.

You use a repeater if you have an existing wifi that doesnt cover the full house, but no powerline. You place the repeater somewhere where signal strength is still good and the repeater then picks up the wifi and retransmits it at full power to the rest of the house. The trouble with using a repeater in my house is that the signal drops sharply between upstairs and downstairs, so there is no easy place to put the repeater, and I had no luck with a TP-Link TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Universal Wall Plug Range Extender.

For my second attempt, I used this product, plugging it into an existing powerline network that uses the now superceded Netgear XEB1004's.
As this is old gear, there is no 'quick connect' type option, so I had to do it all manually. This took some time, but a few resets and tweaks later it was all working. Par for the course I guess - manually setting up networks never works first time!

A minor issue is that there is no plug passthrough, so you will lose the socket you plug it into. That is probably unavoidable (the extender needs a clear forward-facing surface to transmit the wifi), and not even an issue for me because I have mine on a 6-way extension plug strip.

Recommended if you have an existing powerline network, but be aware than you need such a network for the extender to work. If you have only WIFI, you probably want to search for 'WIFI range extender'.
